Legato, Staccato, Long-lifted
This was my world
Undefined by the varieties music revealed
Legato as smooth as silk
Staccato like strikes of lightning
Long-Lifted as if it where bursts of wind
Diversity, originality, definition
I wanted it all.
I was greedy for perfection.
Every rhythm, articulation, dynamic
Made it worthwhile
Music was my drug,
Every time I played/ listened I was intoxicated
With the beauty of it
Not recognizing the foundation of my passion was
Legato, Staccato, and Long-lifted

The author's comments:
I've been playing music since fifth grade and every time I play it gives me a satisfying feeling. I hope people will see the power that music has on people when they read this.
